NTT Com Connects with Brunei

NTT Communications and Brunei International Gateway (BIG), a joint venture of government and telecommunications companies in Brunei, agreed to collaborate in providing local Internet service providers (ISPs) with IPv4/IPv6 dual stack global access via NTT Com's Tier-1 global IP network. BIG's local infrastructure will provide direct connections to NTT Com's Tier-1 network.

NTT Com is BIG's first partner to establish an International Internet Gateway (IIG) for ISPs in Brunei and nearby regions of neighboring countries. Several local ISPs already connect separately to global ISPs, but the IIG will unify connections for greater efficiency.
